The Edible Schoolyard

One of the most important campaigns for local governments is to bring healthy foods to the underserved and end childhood obesity once and for all. Gourmet retailers and vendors have teamed up with Chef Alice Waters to open The Edible Schoolyard in Greensboro, N.C.

Chef Waters is the pioneer of local and sustainable cooking who founded  Chez Panisse Restaurant and Foundation. She created the first Edible Schoolyard in 1995 to integrate cooking and gardening. If kids take part in planting and growing their food, they will eat it. Even if it’s broccoli and brussel sprouts. It has spread across the country and officially opened  at the Greensboro Children’s Museum this year.

Many manufacturers such as All Clad, Le Creuset and Wusthof helped furnish the kitchen with supplies.

Let’s give a standing ovation and support this wonderful cause. No child should go hungry and this program will help feed their minds and bodies.

Happiness, $25 and under.
